Body weight gain of C57B6 mice fed different high-fat diets. (a) Fatty acid contents in each diet were estimated based on nutritional composition (Supplementary Table S2) and fatty acid composition in palm oil (PO), safflower oil (FO) and soy oil (SO). Fatty acids were determined using GC-MS as described in Materials and methods section. (b, c) Food intake and body weight gain of C57B6 mice fed for 8 weeks with control low-fat diet (LFD), high-palm oil (high-PO), high-safflower oil (high-FO) or high-soy oil (high-SO) diets with or without KAA fortification was compared. In each panel, the white square, black circle and gray circle represent low-fat diet, control high-fat and KAA fortified high-fat diets, respectively. Average body weight at day 0 was 27.2±0.25. All values are expressed as means±s.e.m. (n=6 for each group).
